Samsung has been keeping busy this week, unveiling a bunch of Windows 8 ultrabooks with touchscreens and hybrid tablets. The new products are said to be part of the “Smart PC” category, that includes the brand new Samsung Series 5 Ultra Touch Windows 8 ultrabook.
The basic Series 5 Ultra Touch model goes for $809.99 and packs a Core i3 CPU, that can be upgraded to Core i5 for an extra $50. 4 GB of RAM and a 1366 x 768 display are included, as well as 500GB of HDD storage. The product weighs 3.83 pounds, maybe a bit too much for an ultrabook. The other products unveiled recently include the rebranded Ativ Smart PC500T, now going for $749.99 with keyboard or $649.99 without it. There’s also the 700T model, priced at $1,199 and you should know that both are Windows 8 tablets.
500T relies on an Atom Z2760 processor, while the 700T has Core i5. The former uses 2 GB of RAM and 64 GB of storage, while the latter gets 4 GB of RAM and 128 GB of storage. Samsung also announced laptops from the Series 9 Premium Ultrabooks, at $1300 a pop, for the 13 inch model and $1400 for the 15 inch one. Most of these devices will debut on October 26th with Windows 8.
